Chinatown Square

The title of my post may be a little on the boring side, but I think you’ll agree that my photos make up for it. Yesterday I enjoyed my first (ever) visit to Chinatown on the near south side of Chicago, where I ate lunch with a friend. Being smack-dab in the middle of Chinatown Square was a lot like being in a whole other world: I guess that’s probably true of a visit to any city’s Chinatown. The culture, the sculptures, the signage, the sights, and the smells have a way of enveloping you in such a lovely way.







Want more? I thought so.

    Lovely pictures!

    Isn’t it amazing how…different it feels being in Chinatown? It’s just a block away from the “normal” city, and yet worlds away. I’d love to do a comparison of Chinatowns across the country. I’ve been only to San Francisco’s and Boston’s…and I’m sure I’ve passed thru NY but can’t remember.

    OOOH! Mark this on my list of places to visit! I don’t think I have ever been to Chicago’s china town which is really surprising!
